Fly through the night (even if it's on a vacuum!) and cause trouble for the town of Salem when you dress up in this spellbinding Mary Sanderson costume! Lurk about the streets with Winifred and Sarah in Mary's signature brown and orange dress, which features a brown lace-up bodice and brown patterned lace that rests upon contrasting layers of a lightweight handkerchief skirt. Goldtone hoops accent the bottom of the vest, and the included apron is the perfect finishing touch for any bewitching occasion.
When trying to decide between two sizes, choose the larger size for a better fit.

Dress is great but the best is too small.

Comments about Spirit Halloween Adult Mary Sanderson Costume - Hocus Pocus:
I got this in a size 1x the dress fits wonderful however the vest is a way to small and from reading the reviews its just one size fits most vests labeled according to the size. I even got another string to tie it up and it's still too small. My bust size is 40D and its just does not work. Exchanging is out if the question.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comfortable and cool to wear
from the world
About Me Adventurous, Classic
Both my friend and I tried this Mary dress on in a Spirit Store. I loved how the fabric was not that typical cheap Halloween costume spandex type of material. The majority of the fabric within this dress is chiffon/ light weight. The vest is a cotton type of fabric. If you are the type of person that loves wearing costumes, but tends to sweet (due to layers/ heaviness of costume) then this would be a good buy for you (due to the light weight fabric dress is made from). Personally, I think it's really cute (despite it being shorter in length then the actual dress used in the Hocus Pocus Film). My only real complaint is the sleeves, and how they hang off of the shoulders. For my personal taste, I don't like sleeves that are hard to keep on the shoulders, it irritates me to have to pull them up throughout the night. These sleeves tend to fall over the shoulders. However, please take what I have written above with a grain of salt, because when trying this costume on neither my friend, nor myself wore the vest. Looking back, I think that the vest would've helped prevent the sleeves from falling off of our shoulders. Otherwise, this is a pretty cool looking dress, made of nice materials. Personally, I could not have sown a dress like this for the 50 something bucks that Spirit is asking for their version/ costume. As for size, it might be better if you get a size larger then what you normally wear? I know that the dress my friend tried on fit perfectly in her size, but I needed a size larger....that decision is up to you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This costume is incredibly well made. I look forward to wearing it this Halloween, as it is comfortable and delivers a quintessential Mary Sanderson look. The lower ratings due to sizing reflect issues with the individual, not the product. Costume is true to size.

Love except too small vest
By Nikki the gypsy
from Jackson, TN
About Me Adventurous, Trendy
I bought the costume and mixed and matched it to make a more unique gypsy/fortune teller costume. At the spirit store they are VERY limited on options for plus size and plus size women HAVE to try their costumes on. The store didn't let us take the vest to the back. I usually wear a 2x in costumes. The dress was loose fitting and comfortable, perfect even. When I got home and tried the vest on it would not even come close to fitting. I know it is expandable and tried that as well. I wear a 42DD so it should have fit, but it didn't come close. I added a faux leather string into the corset vest but still had to wear a cami under it for work since the top is sheer. I would still recommend but would let them know about the vest.

My vest doesn't have the gold rings
from Los Angeles, CA
I love this costume, but my vest didn't include the gold rings as pictured. Still super cute and fun, just not as advertised.

Vest is too small
By Drag lover
from Easton, Pa
About Me Adventurous
I love how loose the dress is but the vest is too small. I had to get a longer string. It looks okay with the longer string. Little disappointed that the vest is not fitting well. Bought it in store and would like to try another size up but they only offer it online. Not sure how to exchange size without buying 2...

Perfect I'm in love
By Les the druid
About Me Adventurous, Classic, Conservative, Trendy
First off anyone who read the comments about the vest being too small- the vest is expandable you can unlace it! I read their comments and thought it was sewn together but its not. Plus the laces are leather nice and strong! True to size if not a bit large. I would buy all of the set if i could.
Just bought this costume!!! Very well made! Looks great on!

I host a Halloween dinner on Halloween night! I can't wait to wear this costume! My daughter and best friend bought the other two !! We can't wait to be the Sanderson sisters!
Vest is way too small
from San Antonio Texas
About Me Spooky
I just bought this dress for my wife and she tried it on at the spirit store, at first she was skeptical because she has a size H chest but when she tried on the dress in a 2XL, it fit amazing and she was so excited to get it, so we got it. But when we got home, she tried the vest on with the dress and it doesn't fit at all. It won't even go over her chest and she is very bummed about it. Overall the only good part was the dress it self. If you're a bigger chested women don't get this costume unless you decide to make your own vest.
Guest Services Response:We appreciate your feedback on our Adult Mary Sanderson Costume. We're sorry to hear the vest didnt fit as expected. The vest is listed as having a chest size of 44-46 this may be the cause for the tight fit on your wife's H size chest. We sent you an email to determine the best manner to assist you and hope to hear from you soon.
LOVED my costume
Loved the costume! The vest was a tad tight but I love it so much I'll work through it. The string in it is a little difficult to try and fix but it works. The part of the dress that covers your chest under the vest is actually see through so you have to wear something underneath if you take the vest off.
Great costume, too bad about the fit.
About Me Classic
The dress itself is well-made and generous in size. The costume says size 22, I take a 24, Canadian, and I even had some room to spare. Unfortunately, the vest is way too small. I figure it might fit a size 18. Maybe. If you can put your own vest over it, go for it. But you definitely need a vest, as the top is extremely sheer. I'm bummed out about this one. It's a fantastic costume, great quality.
So much fun!
from Simi Valley, CA
I bought the plus size (1X) and at the time I bought it there was no size chart available. I'm usually about a size 16 to 18. It was actually a little too big for me and I was pleasantly surprised but luckily I know how to sew and I can take in the sides of the bodice very easily and only too big by about an inch or two. The Layers of skirts are absolutely fantastic and the chemise is very lightweight perfect for hot weather. The only con (besides my fault in picking the wrong size) is that the elastic band where the skirt meets the chemise is very itchy.
AWESOME but not true to size
Amazing outfit. The quality is amazing and the dress is heavy - a sign of great craftsmanship. My only negative is that although the dress fits perfectly, the vest is too small. The sizing chart says I'm a medium, but the vest is designed for an extra small.
